Our neighbor has a large raspberry patch that he sells berries to farmers markets and such. He offered to let me come pick some berries and I said a quick YES! My friend and I went with our bowls in hand and spent and 1 1/2 hours blissfully picking berries. I won't bore you with the details about how I was imagining I was in a Jane Austen novel, berry picking with friends. lol
When we returned home, the kiddies had to have quite a few of the fresh berries before I shooed them away.
Freezer jam is soooo easy to make. All you need is berries, sugar, and pectin/freezer jam packets. The recipe is on the back of the freezer jam pectin packet. I love that I get to control how much sugar I'm adding (I always add less than it says because I want to taste the berry and not the sugar) and I love that I can leave big chunks in my jam. mmm
Have I convinced you? What is your favorite jam?
